    I have been working at Leon County School Board part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lot of great teachers and staff, challenging work at times, but worth it. You can really make a difference.

    Cons

    Students pass but remain in a stupor. Not being completely reached by current system. Too much focus on testing and not enough on creating good citizens. Sub rate is babysitting rate (higher in other districts). They want you to babysit, which is disingenuous. Too much focus on procedures and certifications, and not enough common sense.

    Advice to Management

    Ban phones in classroom. Fight back against too much testing. Do not carry dead weight on the payroll. Do not carry students who have defiance/anger problems (most other issues can be dealt with). Do not move the deck chairs around and pretend something is getting done.
